On July 21st 2016, the PHP group published PHP 7.0.9.

This is a security release. Several security bugs were fixed in this release, including the HTTP_PROXY issue. All PHP 7.0 users are encouraged to upgrade to this version.

Packages of PHP 7.0.9 are now available for Debian 8 “Jessie” on amd64 and i386 architectures, along with the following PECL extensions : APCu, APCu_bc, geoip, igbinary, imagick, memcached, mongodb, msgpack, redis, ssh2 and xdebug (Careful, PHP 7 support from some of them is still very young!).

    The PECL extension for Solr have support for PHP 7 in the latest version, would be awesome to have that built also.

    Thanks for the release!

    Could you provide the mailparse PECL please? It is available for PHP7.

    The instructions on how to compile PECL packets myself from 2008 don’t seem to work. dh-make-pecl from Debian is PHP5 dependent and I wasn’t able to get it to accept –phpversion 7. Are there any updated instructions?

    @Charuru presumably because nobody in their right mind encodes their php source in obscure charactersets, so why waste the cpu during compilation?
